Designed by J.T. Kalmar, the Fliegenbein series gets its name from its base, which resembles the legs of a housefly.
The Fliegenbein Floor Lamp pairs slender and voluminous shapes, complementing any modern interior. The freestanding armature comprises two bent metal tubes that merge into a single shaft, and a pleated silken shade that suspends near the top of this column. Three matte finishes accentuate the shape of the legs, which also feature Kalmar Werkstätten’s signature wheat-colored electrical cord.
After the turn of the century, Julius Theodor Kalmar, son of the original founder, studied under the renowned Austrian architect and designer Josef Hoffmann at the Vienna School of Applied Arts and at the Birmingham School of Art and Design.
